7:05 am
his own when fire department got here. just an astonishing story that none was killed here. thousand if we go to the shot from above and looking town at the this hotel my guess is looking at it without the roof and attic area where fire was able to spread from room to room, you can see what was a bunch of hotel rooms and is what left of them since they are all caught on fire. the chief was out here and along with one of the guests from dublin, ireland had a great attitude about all of this. one of the -- wanted to thank the reason he said he was still alive and that was a vineland police office shore we learned is jay rodriguez. he was one of the two hurt along with the guest in room 248. jay rag read us this smoke that will lacing in the hospital because he spent as much time as he had to get everybody out of here. people told us the alarms were not working in the rooms or hallway. they got out because jay, and maybe another cop, was inside this hotel, banging on every
7:06 am
door, getting every guest alive. >> fire conditions from one unit on the second floor was fire extending in the hallway. we were able to initially contain the fire to the hallway and the fire unit, and then we had fire extend to the attic space and basically ran from the rear of the building up to the firewall, about six units the up and we were able to contain it in the attic space above those six units. >> reporter: you and everybody else told me no smoke alarms woke you up but knocking on the doors. >> yes, they did a great job. it was the police, inside. police woke me up. they opened up the door. police, get out, get the out. when. >> reporter: did you know it was on fire. >> there was a fire, get out of here. just get yourself out of here. so it was a case of just putting on the jeans and getting out the door really.
7:07 am
>> reporter: we have told brendan and his family could watch us on fox 29 to the come in ireland. he said they were doing that and getting a kick out of that why is a guy from dublin staying in the ramada in vineland. he is in the glass business. for those who know south jersey there is a huge glass industry and big glass history town in these parts of the millville, bridgeton and vineland. he is a regular visitor from ireland. he wants to thank the fire fighters and that police office shore got him out of here so he can continue to live and be in the glass business and hoping his passport is in that mess, but don't count on it. he can get another one i'm sure. >> least of his worries. he has a story to tell. >> i thought he was here for st. patrick's day parade, but no. >> just to say thank you. a man is in critical condition after a hit and run last night in kensington. >> police are searching for the driver, jenny joyce is in brewerytown with the very latest on the investigation. >> good morning.
7:08 am
>> reporter: good morning, police tell us that the vehicle they believed to be involved in this accident was recovered, in port richmond, overnight, and on the 3,000 block of martha street, accident investigators are still looking for the driver and the victim a four three-year old man remains in critical condition, at hahnemann university hospital after he was struck by a car, last night, it happened around 7:30, in the the area of emerald and clear field streets in kensington. police say a silver four door vehicle hit the victim who was leaving a corner store. police say the man was feet there his home when he was hit investigators say i am ago shattered the western's wind chilled. >> he was only just feet from the front door to his house where he lived when a car that was traveling east on clear field struck the victim and based on the scene we know that after being struck by the
7:09 am
car, that his body was launched, about 50 feet in an eastbound direction. we found his cell phone and glasses, at one location, and right here near his home, because he was almost home when he got the hit by a car and then 50 feet east is where police found him, laying on the highway, unconscious. >> police say several witnesses have come forward and they do have surveillance video of the accident. they say hit and run victim is a nice hand. actually when it is warm he is known to have cook food for everyone in the neighborhood and very well known. he will need support of neighbors as he fights the for his life at hahnemann hospital , back to you guys. more reason to come forward. police are investigating murder in chester, and, 2600 block of boyle street. crime comes just days after the hair held two round table discussions, addressing violence in the area.
7:10 am
also, someone found a, marshall road bridge in, upper darby, and, officers, responded to trying to figure out what happened here. police have not said if the body was that of a man or a woman or how they may have died. as soon as we learn more we will pass it to you. is there a developing story out of washington d.c. where a shoot-out leaves two police officers wounded and suspect is dead. this is right here the scene, just 2 miles from the u.s. capitol building late last night. it is in the clear what led up to the shooting or what caused the call to police to be responding to. both officers are being treated at the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. and the time now 7:10. president donald trump will try to reunite conservatives with an appearance that will be this part a victory lap. >> we are hearing from one of the hose controversial figures within the administration steve banon, emerged as a powerful tors behind many trump initiatives and a lot of
7:11 am
people have never heard him speak publicly like this. >> reporter: alex and thomas, that is right. he is not reclusive this is sense that we see him. we see him, in a lot of these trump events but very rarely hear from him. that changed yesterday. donald trump has appeared at conservative gathering known as cpac but never like his anticipated return today as president. still perhaps more fast that iting for trump supporters and detractors was the appearance yesterday of top trump aid steven banon a major force behind trump policies rarely speaks in public and he did not hold back. >> if you think that they will give you your country back without the a fight you are sadly mistaken. >> reporter: banon spoke about a battle against official washington where federal agencies and workers a massed too much power he believes. >> the way the progressive left runs, is that if they can
7:12 am
this is get it past they will put in some kind of regulation this an agency that is all going to be d-con struck. >> reporter: to that end the president is expected to sign a new executive order, his reform presumably lead to the scaling back of regulations, another major move as white house continues to face a number of issues. this morning the associated rest report ago this chief of staff reince priebus spoke to the fbi asking agency to defend the administration from a report alleging contacts between campaign officials and russia. that will fire up democrats. but cpac it is about uniting conservative republicans and even some trump skeptics on the right see an opportunity. >> some have trouble about the trade issue, and the protectionism issue, but for many conservatives, it was kind of a home coming. >> reporter: it hey not be known to a lot of folks but within conservative circles it is a huge conference, going on
7:13 am
right now. it is interesting to go look at donald trump's arc this his relationship with cp theac just a year ago he lost straw poll for president there, today he returns today as president. >> we will be examining the president's word today in that speech. doug lou said inner washington , doug, thanks. pope francis is causing a stir after calling many catholics hypocrites. >> in the only that he said many are leading a double life and should be atheist instead. >> karen, you are here to explain his comments. >> maybe objecting to righteous indignation. he is telling 1.2 billion members of the church to be better to be a ate they is then to be a hipocrit california catholic. during a tally has he he said scandal to say one thing and to do another. it is like living a double life. as an example he denounced catholics go to mass and participate in church associations and activities but then to something like launder money or refuse to pay their employees a fair wage
7:14 am
and not just to the right thing. he cautioned against having excessive confidence that god will forgive you in the even and it will all work out and maybe more time to atone later in your life. he wants you to think bit every single day and how we are acting in our exchanges we are having. pope has a history of controversial comments. he is, including some expansions for reeses to have the authority to forgive abortions. divorced catholics as well as asking for a lot more acceptance of gay and lesbian people, as well. so, you know, just telling us to be better people and be the better person when in one is looking. >> live by example. thanks, karen. 7:14. releasing a balloon in atlantic city could cost you hundreds of dollars. >> council members voted unanimously to find violators as much as $500. this is all about protecting marine life that can easily confuse balloons for food which can be a deadly mistake. other towns absecon island,

7:36 am
